skirt! magazine (est. 1994) has posted new editorial themes for 2017 to help freelance writers pitch relevant articles for forthcoming issues. The monthly magazine proclaims itself as “part feminista, part fashionista” because each issue addresses all facets of a woman’s personality–their work, their play, their families and their creative thinking. Parent media company Morris Communications distributes skirt! magazine for free throughout the metropolitan Charleston, SC area.
The editors solicit two personal essays monthly on subjects identifying with women and women’s interests. The content of skirt! is spirited, individualistic, forthright, serious, whimsical and tongue-in-cheek, sometimes controversial and always heartfelt.
Word length: 800-1100 words per essay.
Payment: $200 per essay.
Although the editors solicit submissions year-round, the deadline for each issue is the first of each month for the following month. Make sure you read the updated writer’s guidelines at skirt! magazine’s website.
